Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

גִּיל rarely גּוּל or גּוֹל (Proverbs 23:25 כתיב), fut. יָגִיל, apoc. יָגֵל prop. to go in a circle (comp. גָּלַל, whence גִּיל), like the Arabic جَالَ Med. Waw to dance (compare חוּל and חָגַנ); hence

(1) to leap for joy, to rejoice; poet. Job 3:22, הַשְּׂמֵחִים אֱלֵי־גִיל “those who rejoice even to exultation;” Isaiah 49:13, 65:18, seq.; followed by בְּ of pers. or thing, concerning which we are glad, Psal. 9:15 13:6 21:2 31:8 149:2 also עַל Zephaniah 3:17 גִּיל בַּיהֹוָה to rejoice in Jehovah, i.e. to delight in Him, especially on account of benefits bestowed by him, Isaiah 29:19, 41:16 Joel 2:23; Psalms 35:9, 89:17. Rejoicing and leaping for joy are sometimes ascribed also to inanimate things, Psalms 96:11; Isaiah 35:1.

(2) to tremble, as accompanied by the leaping and palpitation of the heart (see Job 37:1 Psal. 29:6 compare the roots חָגַנ and חוּל. So Gr. ὀρχεῖται καρδία φόβῳ, Æschyl. Choeph. 164, 1022; ἡ καρδία πάλλει, πάλλει φόβῳ, Seidl. ad Eurip. Electr. 433; Lat. cor salit, Plaut.; and on the other hand פָּחַד, of the mind trembling for joy, Isaiah 60:5; Jeremiah 33:9). Psalms 2:11, גִּילוּ בִּרְעָדָה “tremble with fear” [there is no need to depart from the common meaning]; Hosea 10:5, “for the people shall mourn on account of it (the calf), וּבְרָיו עָלָיו יָגִילוּ and the priests shall tremble for it.”
